Pre-inspection information request
A pre-inspection information request will be sent to each hospital with the notice of inspection. The purpose of this is to provide background information about the governance arrangements and safety systems and processes in place to support medication safety in the hospital. The pre-inspection information request also outlines documents to be submitted to HIQA before the inspection.
